Comte de Paris, History of the Civil War in America. Vol. 3. (ed. Henry Coppee , LL.D.), Book I:—the war on the Rapidan. (search)
nd courage for the hard battles it was about to fight, its effective force was not only augmented by the return of deserters, but also by the addition of some ten thousand men. Unfortunately, there were in its ranks nearly twenty-three thousand men whose term of service expired in the month of May. These consisted of thirty-three New York regiments and two from Maine, which, out of a total of 20,842 men, numbered 16,472 who had enlisted for two years at the breaking out of hostilities in April, 1861; also eight regiments of Pennsylvania, mustered into service for nine months only by the call for troops which followed Pope's disaster in August, 1862, and which numbered 6421 officers and men under arms. The soldiers appertaining to the first category, trained up to the hardships of war by two years of campaigning, were about to leave a great void in the Army of the Potomac, but the law was explicit: they were to be set free on the 1st of May, 1863, and if the Federal general desired t
Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 12., The first Methodist Episcopal Church of Medford. (search)
1854 the following able and consecrated pastors served the Methodist Episcopal Church in Medford: Revs. J. A. Adams, James Shepard, Thomas W. Tucker, Willard Smith, A. D. Merrill, John W. Perkins and Charles Noble. Revs. E. S. Best and William A. Braman followed. During Mr. Braman's ministry the vestry was repaired and improved, and a gracious revival of religion was experienced. Rev. A. F. Herrick followed, and was succeeded by Rev. Jarvis A. Ames. Mr. Ames was appointed to Medford in April, 1861, and on the day he arrived news came of the attack on Fort Sumter. The next Wednesday the Lawrence Light Guard left Medford for three months service at the front, and Mr. Ames offered the farewell prayer as the company gathered around him in Medford square. He proved himself a loyal citizen and ardent patriot in the two years he remained at Medford. One of his chief characteristics was his fearless outspokenness for what he believed to be right and the uncompromising attitude he took in
Intelligence from Mexico. --Letters from Vera Cruz state that a Convention, held at the Capital, composed of officers of the Church and of the military, had appropriated $300,000 per month of the Churches funds to sustain Miramon in the defence of the capital. On the 5th the Juarez Government proclaimed that after April, 1861, all duties are to be paid in cash, half of which may be in sight bills on the city of Mexico, for the purpose of paying indemnities. All goods remaining in the Custom-House over one month shall be sold to pay duties. The various foreign Ministers, except the Minister of Spain, were at Jaiapa. Gen. Mata was the prominent candidate for Governor of Vera Cruz. Juarez has raised a loan of $600,000 for the purchase of supplies for the army now before the capital.
From Montgomery. [special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Montgomery, Ala., ">April , 1861. The Government of the Confederate States having proceeded, upon just grounds, to the extremity of attacking Fort Sumter, the liveliest feelings of delight are manifested here at the victorious and bloodless conquest.--Justice has at last triumphed, and now there is no longer a foot of territory belonging to the heroic State of South Carolina--"the home of the brave" --in the possession of a Government foreign to her soil and its interests. The false, pretences and base artifices practiced by Lincoln and his Cabinet in regard to Sumter, availed them but little else than the infliction of fresh disgrace upon an Administration which, while sending over the country the most positive assurances of its intention to evacuate the fort, had in employment a set of hypocritical emissaries, like the pacific Mr. Fox, prowling about Charleston in the guise of officers and gentlemen, but whose
Mr. W. A. Violett, one of our largest wholesale grocers, hearing that the gallant and zealous Capt. L. Lay had raised a volunteer company of one hundred men — who were supplied with an the equipments of soldiers' and only wanted uniforms — sent an order to the Captain, on a clothing establishment to have the whole, company uniformed at his (Mr. Violett's) expense. The following letter, with the Governor's patriotic response, appeared in the Nashville American: "Nashville, April 18th, 1861. "To His Excellency Isham G. Harris, "Governor of Tennessee "Sir: I hold myself in readiness to honor your draft on me for thousands of dollars, to aid you in placing Tennessee in a state of defence. "I doubt not that there are many others quite as able, and more patriotic than myself, who will come to the rescue of our State in its portions position. "I am, most respectfully, your ob't serv't "" It is only when we road of such instances of generosity and patriotism tha
warlike times of the past month, the report of Captain Wm. Y. Sheppard, of the inspections of Tobacco for April, show only a falling off of 181 hhds., as compared with the previous month, (March,) and a falling off of 601 hhds., as compared with April, 1860. From the published reports of Capt. Sheppard, we find that in April, 1860, there were inspected at Shockoe Warehouse1,563 hhds. public Warehouse1,271 hhds. Seabrook's Warehouse846 hhds. Dibrell's592 hhds. 4,272 hhds. in April, 1861: Shockoe Warehouse972 hhds. Public Warehouse756 hhds. Seabrook's Warehouse725 hhds. Dibreil's Warehouse324 hhds. Mayo's (new) Warehouse894 hhds. 3,671 hhds. Total falling off601 hhds. We hear that there was but little disposition manifested to buy the past week, and that the article has fallen off in price very much, and our commission merchants have advised the planters to keep their Tobacco at home for the present, consequently the receipts are now very small.
. As England cannot send merchandize to pay for the cotton and grain she has bought, she must send specie, and until the last crop is paid for, specie must continue to come in lieu of merchandize. The falling off of British exportations to the United States is very striking. The Morrill tariff act went into effect on the first of April. The export from Great Britain to the United States of sundry goods during this month for several years past show a most surprising falling off for April, 1861. The British export of plain cottons to the United States in the months of April for a few years past have been as follows: 18574,714,492 yards. 18602,932,615 yards. 1861483,715 yards. the British export of dyed and printed cottons for the same month was as follows: 18574,236,145 yards. 18605,450,048 yards. 18612,819,147 yards. the figures for cotton yarn for the month of April were: 185964,341 yards. 186050,809 yards. 186116,722 yards. th
